Mississippi Election Contest: Ray Rosamond v. Rodriquez Brown 2013-05 Canton Democratic primary D 2013-05 Election Contest Ineligible district voting Voter intimidation The 2013 election for Ward 1 alderman in Canton was sent back to the voters after a Circuit Court judge ruled Tuesday that illegal voting and voter intimidation occurred in the May Democratic primary. Judge Forrest Johnson Jr. of Natchez said the will of the voters could not be determined through the May 7 ballot box. He ordered the election results for Ward 1 alderman be tossed and a new election called while allowing Rodriquez Brown, who won the June 4 election, to remain in office. “Whether one agrees or disagrees, the evidence I heard is disturbing to say the least,” said Johnson, who was appointed to hear the case by the Mississippi Supreme Court. “For poll workers to endure what I’ve heard is not right.” The five members of the Madison County Election Commission, who were requested to sit in on the hearing at Johnson’s request as technical advisers on elections, agreed with the judge’s ruling. Ray Rosamond filed the court challenge after losing to Brown by four votes in the Democratic primary. Johnson ruled that Kimberly Readus, a member of the Canton Democratic Municipal Executive Committee, used “profanity and bullying tactics to create a breach of the peace, intimidate voters and poll workers to disrupt the election process.” After listening to testimony from poll workers and poll watchers in the Ward 1 precinct, Johnson also found that Readus wrongly allowed voters, who should have voted by a paper affidavit ballot — which could have been challenged later — to use the electronic voting machines. In one instance, he said, “contrary to law” Readus also tore up an affidavit ballot. Johnson said that four or more of affidavit ballots — the votes of those whose names are not on the poll book — were undocumented and should not have been counted. “The court finds it clearly appears that Kimberly Readus willfully and corruptly violated election law,” Johnson said. While the judge declined to issue an arrest warrant from the bench for Readus, who no longer is a member of the municipal committee, Johnson directed the offices of the Madison County district attorney and the state attorney general to present charges against her to the next grand jury. Election consultant Pete Perry, the chairman of the Hinds County Republican Party, testified that he saw Brown campaigning inside the boundaries required by state law, challenges to absentee or affidavit votes not being accepted, and tabulations not equaling the number of votes cast.
